Stepping Out From Behind The Stigma

I’ve lived my life feeling like I don’t belong anywhere.  As a result, I’ve spent most of my years trapped in the hamster-wheel of addiction and other self-destructive behaviors.  I eventually lost everything, including my husband to an overdose, my home, jobs, cars, my dignity, and my self worth.  At my darkest time, I didn’t care if I lived or died.   Living my life with a “someday” mentality had left me miserable and lonely.

In 2016, I decided to get honest with myself and others. With the help of an out-patient recovery program, medication and ongoing counseling, I’m taking control of my life.  I’m stepping out from behind the stigma, tackling life on life’s terms, and letting go of the shame and guilt associated with addiction.  I’m growing comfortable in my own skin,  recognizing my super power and I want to help others find their inner-awesome and create a life they love, too.
